Frank de Boer says that he is "proud" to equal the Eredivisie title-winning feats of former managers Rinus Michels and Louis van Gaal.

Frank de Boer has spoken of his pride at guiding Ajax to their third successive Eredivisie crown.

The Amsterdam giants crushed Willem II 5-0 yesterday to confirm the title, which sees De Boer join greats Rinus Michels and Louis van Gaal as three-time title winners.

"It is a very nice list to be part of," the 42-year-old told reporters.

"It is very special to have achieved what they did at this club. When you are compared with people like that, you can only feel proud."

Ajax travel to Groningen for their last Eredivisie fixture on Sunday.
